Abstract:


This paper proposed a system to perform injury recognition to assist people with multiple disabilities using single infrared sensor with rotatable capability. Our system will be installed in a room to monitor the disabled for fall, inactivity and help request to recognize injury of people with multiple disabilities. This system alerts the caregiver with alarm, short message (SMS) and a scene snapshot (email), the snapshot assists in verifying false alerts. The designed system is sustainable as it is computationally inexpensive and efficient. The system has the abilities to recognize common human activities. Besides, the system is non-intrusive as there is no wearable device required on the person under monitoring. The system is intuitive as the person or subject under monitoring does not have to press any button for informing and verifying a possible injury.
